When I was much younger I played with a Black Magic Autococker, then left the game only to come back to all these electronic markers. Played with a heavily modified ego.
I can't get to the center as fast anymore thanks to my knee, but I'll be playing with noobs today so I'll probably use a Tipman 98 and play back.
Niiiice, the Black Magics were rather lovely back in the day. I still haven't purchased a market yet, but I used to play somewhat often several years ago. I still want a CCM Series 6.5, but it's that $800 USD up front cost (if you get absolutely EVERYTHING, which is usually highly recommended so the anodizing is the same shade on all parts) is what's kept me at bay. Apparently the Empire autococker release they did was of similar quality to the hot rodded 'cockers of the early 2000's.
I still have trust issues with any electro-pneumatic markers, but that's probably because of the simple fact that I don't like batteries and the fact that anything that uses batteries usually has a bad habit of dying when you aren't paying attention.
...Then again, I like my compact and relatively lightweight markers simply because I have a tendency to play front, but never did get into any kind of tournament play. 6'2" guy up front, apparently the guys I used to play with on a regular basis thought it was rather interesting to watch a tall guy just divebomb snakes off the break.
